Graduation Convocation Ceremonies

Convocation is a time of celebration. Convocation Day is a chance for our students to get together with their classmates, family, friends, and faculty to celebrate their accomplishments. In addition to celebrating the achievements of our graduates at the ceremony, Vancouver Island University often grants honorary degrees and awards. A reception celebrating the achievement of our graduates is held after each convocation ceremony.

Vancouver Island University's upcoming graduation convocation ceremonies are:

  • January 30-31, 2020 (all programs)
  • June 1-3, 2020 (ITAS, and most academic programs, except those listed for June 18-19)
  • June 18-19, 2020 (Trades except ITAS; Health Care Assistant, Education Assistant and Community Support, and Dental Assistant; and ALL Education programs EXCEPT Diploma in Physical Education)

More details about each of these ceremonies will be posted as they become available.  Please contact us at with any questions.
